Is inteligence just a trap, among other things?
The idea is simple:
As a creature develop a brain in such a way that it gains consciousness it feels natural that it will ask the most basic of questions; who am I?, where do I come from?, why am I ever here?.
It feels safe to assume that those questions will be universal throught the uni/multiverse.
Altough I think that there is a possibility that a tree, a fruit fly or an amoeba can "feel" and "see" the universe as it is. I believe that simple organisms just kind of *get it* and do not need to think it over, they feel that they are a part of universe and they're one with it.
Maybe this is the trap of inteliigence - when species gets intelligent enough it loses the ability to see the reality as it is and is then confined to whatever it makes of the avaible data. Its just like meditation - the more quiet mind you have, the less you try, the more you get.
What do you think guys/girls?
